The International Center of Photography presents Cartier-Bresson 's own selection of his early work, pictures he glued meticulously in chronological order into an album that he brought with him upon his arrival in New York in April 1946.
The exhibition give a wonderful insight in his early period (1932-1946) when he was still interested more by creating art that gathering news as photojournalist, always looking for the "moment of Grace", or this decisive moment where he tries to capture the best light and life...Through his pictures, you can follow him during his travels to Spain and Mexico and his encounters with Surrealism and modern art in Paris before and after the World War II.
From January 2007-April 2007
